Alan Sondheim: We teleported people into an installation which has been constructed over a period of eight months. It represents nothing of architecture, fantasy, or surrealism; it's a space unlike anything in the real world. It's difficult to move through, a field of alien processes which has a life of its own. Sandy Baldwin and I will dance through and around it - on the ground, in the air, and on the ocean floor. Part of the dance will be based on learning to move around; part will be based on adding to the clutter.

This may well be the first time that an extended phenomenology of a virtual world has been attempted; the installation has changed almost daily for a period of eight months.

very nice piece. sl has been a great place for performances and happenings for a while. if you are interested in things like this take a look at the "i buy everything event" - a modern fluxus happening from 2007. a very intensive piece combining endless layers of media and reality.

has been one of my most instensive experiences in the context of secondlife to me.
